the beacon company originally sold blankets in the early 1900s and eventually the term “beacon” was used to reference a wide range of cotton camp blankets. amy picked up a vintage esmond blanket this year (one of the original producers during the same era as beacon) and we soon noticed that thee colorful blankets, inspired by navajo hand-weavings, were one of the biggest trends at the show (and it was even echoed in the stationery show this year!) so when i heard from stu at three potato four that they’d be stocking some beautiful original beacons i had to start the day with them. the cotton blanket material is often referred to as “wool nap” because the material was actually felted/brushed to give it the warmth of wood and to trap warm air. stu just added a great collection of them to the site ($395 each- a wonderful investment for fall/winter) so click here to check them out and shop online! stay tuned for brimfield trends and shopping tips next…
